Evolution and the Modularity of Mindreading.
Moore, Chris
Cognitive Development, v11 n4 p605-21 Oct-Dec 1996
Reviews Baron-Cohen's study of autism and an explanatory theory called modularity of mindreading, which proposed a domain-specific modular psychological model based on evolutionary, developmental, psychopathological, and neurobiological considerations. Enumerates problems with the modularity approach and emphasized the evolution of domain general abilities. Concludes that the promised cross-disciplinary approach was unfulfilled. (SD)
